Tony Campolo represents for me an articulate and inspiring voice for the Sociologist/Theologian. I majored in Sociology at Murray State University, Murray, KY in 1978. I proceeded on to Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where I received my Mdiv. In 1981. IN the summer of 1980, while serving as Minister of Youth for Ninth Street Baptist Church in Cincinnati, OH, I experienced the insight, wit, and passionate speaking of Campolo for the first time at "Creation '80" in Lancaster County Pennsylvania.

From then on, I collected audio tapes, video, and books featuring Campolo and after exposing my Dad to Campolo, he became a big fan. Campolo has written prolifically, and I have all but one of the books he has written that I know of with the exception of the latest "Carpe Diem", which I have already read in a sense since I saw a film series in which he spoke on much of which is contained in the book. While Camplolo is an excellent writer, it is a special treat to hear him speak. Campolo is the exception to the usual where the book is usually better than the movie.

Campolo is widely accepted in a variety of circles, mainly due to his passionate study of the way Culture and Christianity affect one another. Campolo is Chair of the Sociology Department at eastern College, St. Davids , Penn.
